16 wins gents, 16 effin' wins

was 12 wins with 14 games to go. Playing ok.  Probably got too complacent .... maybe

The amount of times in the last 10 or so games I conceded a 90th odd min goal from a damn rebound was unreal.  Shafted hard by EA

Back to Q school, although I don't think i'll make it

Well gents.  My initial enjoyment of the game came to a shuddering halt with the advent of weekend league

Pre patch, great.  Shrug off the EA sponsored bull$hit and keep moving on.  Post patch, or as I like to call it, the 'EA script patch for those who are crap at the game so we'll give them a fighting chance patch' total revert back to FIFA 17. Why EA, why??

Anyways, weekend league.  Started off all positive and excited.  4-1 start.  Not bad, could this be the breakout year? Nah.  Quickly through the surge of brown stuff, back to level par (5-5).  Sick as F###

This became 7-10. Vomit inducing some of the absolute garbage of KO glitch, 45th + 10min goals and likewise 90th min.  It amazes me that no one at EA who plays this can not see the massive chunk of time that gets added onto the ends of halves and address it.

Back to my Alex Hunter..  I preceded, although playing well, to lose the next 9 on the spin.  Quite how my controller, Console or TV survived that run I'll never know.  Good job the kids were out too.  Surprised the neighbours didn't call the police.  the amount of colourful language being used at increasing volume throughout yesterday afternoon  ;D

Actually then won a couple after a bit of a break.  (9-19). Worst record ever in champs. 12 games to go.  After another break for food, came back to finish this nightmare.  Lost (9-20).  Just about crying at this point.  Put the kids to bed and sat in the chair dumbfounded.  Did a few gold UG sbc's and a few SQB to feel whats its like to win again.

Prior to starting champs, I had a positive record by about 20 or so.  Not really a record watcher, but it was nice to have something which after a poor start last year I didn't think id have again.  Slowly watching this dwindle away almost sucked the life out of me.  Changed from my tried and trusted 4312 and went 4321, a formation I just couldn't make work previously.  My front 3 off chem which just irritates me.  Messed on with custom tactics (which I think is purely a placebo) and took out my 2 defensive midfielders for more attack minded ones with the 'f### it' attitude......

Won the next 8 in a row (17-20)  :o Game felt fluid. Players were pressing to get the ball back.  Constant never say die attitude.  Even playing what I would call good players, I was getting the rub of the green in all games.  Pen shootouts, last min, whatever BS had happened to me prior was now going for me.  I felt genuinely sorry for those who I was playing.  Then lost 1 in an epic proper football game.  No EA BS, just good football. Messaged the guy thanking him for the best game this weekend (17-21).

Next up a solid Bundes team with messers Werner, Bellerabi and OTW Yarmalenko up top.  down 2-1 deep in the 80+ min.  Took off Jesus for Ibra, all out attack.  Scramble one home in the 89th from a corner.  We share one each in ET and are down to pens.

I miss one of the first 5, he has his final kick to win.  Saves.  This happens a couple times more in sudden death.  We get to go round again, and finally I win 10-9.... the scenes  :o :o :o The impossible magic 18.

Great 'story'. And there in lies the problem for us FUT mortals.  Outside of the pros, the game feels like a total movie script, sucking you in, spitting you out with the grand finale of the redemption or the hero falling on his sword bittersweet ending.

Mad, mad game.....  On to next week  :P

Must say despite the usual BS EA throw at us year in year out, i'm enjoying this iteration of FUT more than any before.  Yes the usual 'bugs' are there but i'm so long in the tooth with FUT i'm just shrugging them off and have the 'on to the next' attitude.  I find that when you get it right, it feels much more rewarding.

Try as I may, I cant qualify for the WL.  Lost several finals after cruising through the earlier rounds.  Not building a 78 squad for the one starting tomorrow, so the final attempt will come in the one on Wednesday.  Squad battles hasn't grabbed me just yet.  Looking at twitter & twitch it's the in thing to do so far this FUT.  Suppose its free coins, but other than practising the new defending against legendary AI, its no good prep for WL. Good addition though.

Been reasonably good with pack luck thus far.  The best being IF Mertens.  Selling him on with some other decent pulls has given me this squad

All players are OP.  Bakayoko and Paulinho are a great partnership.  Defence is as solid as it can be.  Likewise with Navas.  Firmino scores great goals and has a good engine on him.  In fact stamina is good throughout.
Jesus....... well JESUS.  Great upgrade for him and has started well as my new addition.
POTM Mane. Given that I already had regular Mane for 35k, it was a bit sore giving him up as he went up to 135k, plus he was on 55 goals in 54 games, but the stats looked too good for me to pass up.  Hasn't fired up like his regular yet but he now has plenty of time to catch up.

Suarez.  God like.  Plays better than his TOTY card from 17.  Slower pace isnt an issue as his positioning is on point.  Still deceptively quick though.  Love this card.

I have a backup Serie A squad for fitness rotation, but will look to upgrade as soon as I can generate more coins.  Not intending to spend any more .

Going to be very selective of the SBC's this year too.  Wasted far to much last year on pointless ones

Hope you are all finding the game a slightly less frustrating experience

Done 10 games in 17 and on 7-3.  Best start ever this fut.  Really should be 9-1 but couple of 'issues' prevented that.

5 games on 18 and 2-3.  All that must be said is that some people do not have a life.  Some of the teams already are nigh on god level compared to my base BPL and Bundes/MLS hybrid teams.  Hard work but rewarding when you beat one

Just checked the e-mails and I got the beta code.  Starts tomorrow at 5pm, so will see if there is any fuss to report.

Will stick on here any notable screen grabs or vids

Best to start a thread in the members only section just in case I'd say.

Hey all.

Got pretty much fk all in my elite monthlies.  More fodder for any SBC's that have any interest.  Comfortable 20 wins this past WL.  Likley to not complete all this coming weekend, but it's my last as i'm off mid week after for 10 days.

Surprised to see FUT going out with a whimper after those End of an Era SBC's.  Kinda daft how the best of SBC's is a better promo than Futties... or should I say the Premier league sweat awards

Well, something very strange happened this weekend.  I actually enjoyed the whole FUT Champs experience  :o

Usual form of BS throughout, but went into it feeling no pressure or without any expectations.

Comfortably got the 18, needing 20 for Elite 3 monthly.  Which again came easily.  1st time this year Elite and gold 2 for the week.

I have next weekend without wife and kids and will likely be my last WL for this FIFA as I go on annual holidays afterwards. August will be the last of the WL I presume.  As for 18, I'll get it, but maybe not until I get the XB1X.  Also after years of spending, and this year finally getting 2 teams which are by far the best of any FIFA, I'm going RTG only.  Chances are there will be little glory though.  Still it will save me a fair few quid and my sanity

Hi fellas

Pretty much settled on my final 2 teams for the death of FUT. Gerrard, Alonso, Lahm & POTM Ibra have filled the gaps nicely.

Champs is the same old story. Win one, lose one.  I get the feeling I'm slap bang in the middle of a skill level.  When I win, it goes up one, get beat and it returns back down a level.  Just like seasons I suppose

Hope you are all well.  Check back in soon

How do

WL done on 20-20. Must say was the best connections for a number of weeks.  Only played late Friday, early Sat and again late Sunday into the early hours of Monday and the last hour before ending.

Really should've done at least gold 1 but managed to throw away about 7 of my last 11 games.  See the monthly Elite is comfortably achievable. Dunno if it is lower than past WL's, but more TOTS or maybe TOTY's as rewards will just about hold my interest.

Futties seems a strange one.  Umtiti ?? where'd that one come from?  Think also you should only be allowed to pick one 'vote' then the others are removed.  Kind of pointless if you vote for them all.

No interest in Totti or Kyut.  Came up against Totti only once and he smashed in a hattrick.  Only have eyes for Gerrard

Did have TOTS Cavani at the start of the WL, but finally got fed up.  Then progressed onto TOTS Lewandowski (he just doesn't work for me), and then settled on TOTS Mane.  None really stood out.  Sold off Mane this morning.  Thinking on TOTS Werner as a super sub, but really want to give Mertens a go, but would leave me with 0 coins, and I feel Gerrard wont come cheap.

My star of the teams this weekend goes to PSBC Torres.  When this card is on, its great to use.

Will try to get the FUT Birthday player then leave until WL again

I know the feeling kiwi.  Same over the pond here in the UK. Sat afternoons and Sunday during the day are big no, no's.....

but I did it anyway just to get the games out of the way.

Was 10-8.  Thinking this would be comfortable getting 8 wins from 22.  Oh no. Quickly became 10-10, then progressed to lose the next 5 with shocking connections combined with having to stream to my laptop as couldn't get the TV on Saturday (during the day!!).

So 10-15, leaving 15 to get 8.  Got to 15-17.  8 to get 3... easy... right??  Had the TV Sunday morning.  Won the first, then lost the next 2  :o panic stations

Won 1, lost 1. 3 games to go.... Won the next 2 for 19 wins.  Finished on 19-21

What a slog that was and much harder than it should have been.  Gold 2 monthly - 4 red 81's on the way  :P

I'm going to play this coming weekend then maybe that's it.  Only interest now is to grab the Gerrard SBC

10-8.  Usual rinse and repeat, win one, lose one, with connections being the major factor in the L's

Some real stick in the throat losses.

See Futties are next week.  Strange they have more content planned for that than TOTS.  That's the old EA consistency for ya

Been flying under the radar lately due to my tablet going the way of the dodo.

Mixed couple of weeks.  Champs has been steady and will nail gold 2 monthly.  slim chance of gold 1.  Done several of the tots packs with mixed results.  None of the top blokes and the club has taken a hammering.  Still have 4 main teams though, but literally no coins :(

Tempted to sell up, to a certain point but resisted so far.

The 125k pack was abysmal.  88 rated brazil CB from Portuguese league  >:( and one 83 rated player.  the rest all sub 81  :o

See that the rewards for champs next week are roll back packs from October !!! WTF use is that????  They will need something waaaay better than that to hold peoples interest until 18 arrives

Later peeps

Wow. Guys relax. It is just a game although I have to admit that my break from it was refreshing.

FUT absorbs you. There is no other game that brings the worst out of you.

Its a love hate relationship. I'll get FIFA simply because I love football, but it will strictly be a RTG approach from now on.

And, guess what?

Game play flips again. Plays great, wins tourney at 1st attempt. The one thing this game is consistent at... being inconsistent

Roll on champs weekend
